2-Ingredient Detox Facial Mask (100% Natural, Deep Cleans Pores & Makes Your Skin Glow!)

I cringe at the amount of money I used to spend on over-priced skincare products full of toxic ingredients that promised miracles and didn’t deliver. As I began to detox my beauty and personal care routine, I quickly learned that natural ingredients work better than anything…and they don’t compromise your health!

One of my favorite discoveries is this super-simple and ultra-effective facial mask, which has just 2 natural ingredients.

The star of the show is 100% calcium bentonite clay. It deep cleans your pores and leaves your skin glowing! I personally use and highly recommend this brand.

The second ingredient in the mask mixture is organic, raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar (look for “with the mother” on the label like this one). Here’s how apple cider vinegar (ACV) benefits your skin:

  • ACV fights acne, pimples and blemishes due to its antibacterial and anti-fungal properties.
  • ACV can help reduce age spots and wrinkles, since it naturally contains alpha hydroxy acids.
  • ACV helps draw toxins out of your skin leaving a clean, youthful glow.
  • ACV balances pH and the production of sebum to keep your skin from becoming too oily or too dry.

If you need more of the mixture to cover your face or other areas like your neck and chest, just add more of mixture with the 1:1 ratio of clay to ACV.

I like to keep a set of stainless steel measuring spoons and a little glass mixing bowl in my bathroom, so I can make my masks in a snap!

If you have normal skin, leave the mask on for 15-20 minutes or until it’s totally dry.

If you have delicate skin, you may want to rinse it off after 5-10 minutes.

As the mask dries, you will feel it tightening and pulsating. When time’s up, you’ll simply rinse it off with warm water. Your skin may be noticeably red after you rinse it off, which is totally normal due to the tightening of the mask (my skin gets VERY red). Once the redness fades, your skin will be GLOWING and your pores will be squeaky clean!

I recommend applying this mask once a week to see quick results. If you have problem skin, you may want to do it more often (2-3 times a week).  Though I’m fortunate to have healthy skin that isn’t prone to acne, I like to do the mask twice a week.
